Belleville Sea Cadets operate the Amateur Radio Station at Ontario Science Centre (Canada)

Eight Sea Cadets from RCSCC Quinte, the Belleville Sea Cadet Corps were part of 28 cadets from across Ontario on a multi-unit training day at the Ontario Science Centre recently.

Ms Jean Moffet, 99, & PO1 (ret’d) Peter Dederer mentored the cadets on subjects including long range operations, satellite, CW, networking as well as Naval communications protocols and procedures. Every cadet received time using the #VE3OSC station and enjoyed making contacts as far away as Germany and Denmark.

This was an opportunity to give Cadet Radio Station Cadets a chance to get hands-on experience in operating a well-equipped amateur radio station capable of global communications and to expand their contact with STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) learning while networking with like-minded cadets. These cadets are your future technicians, maintainers, programmers, and engineers.
